One of the advantages of my present location at Jojoba Hills SKP Park is that RV service businesses come to you rather than you having to drive to them. I’m taking full advantage of that fact. Yesterday, I had someone come to do the ordinary maintenance of the rig’s motor… oil change, filter change, grease job, etc. He also suggested a few other maintenance items like transmission and brake fluid changing. I usually have this stuff done in Scott, LA, but that’s a far cry from here.
Tonight’s pics are of areas around the park. There are six ponds scattered around, and each has a place to sit and rest and enjoy the scenery.
He also noticed a slight exterior leak of engine coolant. I was not surprised, as I’ve had to top off the coolant quite regularly. He was surprised that I knew that. He’ll be back Friday to take care of that and the fluid changing.
One of the two dog parks.
Today, a two man crew came to give the rig an exterior spa treatment. It had a good wash and hand applied Carnauba wax. I don’t think the rig has shined like this since I got it.
Dog park from the top. See that pine tree in the top right hand corner? It’s the Verizon tower. Verizon pays the park $20,000/year to have it here. Sweet!
Thanks to Rick’s suggestion, I was able to get a new face for my cracked I-pad. I called the place up on Sunday, and they came to the park to pick it up. Then on Monday, they delivered it back to me good as new. The cost was $140 including pickup and delivery.

After the mechanic left on Monday, I headed down to the office to hand in my application for membership. As I suspected, I’m #21 on the list. One of the things that I like about this park is that when you turn in your application you agree to put in volunteer time here. There are some paid employees, but I gather that most of the upkeep of the park is done by its volunteers/fellow members. I’m thinking I might like the landscape committee that keeps all the ponds and greenery in tip top shape.
A view of Friendship Hall from a parking lot. That’s where the pool and hot tubs are along with the saunas, craft rooms, gathering hall, tennis and pickle ball courts, work out room, and mail boxes.
I’m thinking since no workmen are scheduled for tomorrow, it’s about time I gave the pool and hot tub a go.
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
